Subject: atrocious dark star
some of this stuff sounds in competently played....but dark star is not the kind of thing you play casually with some "only" hired gun musicians and go, like, "hey boys -- time to get deep --" it is a setting for musical cummunion, an environment in which some kind of telepathy develops, a route appears and the participants engage each other about where they're headed. sorry gang, it just seems like pandering when the more r&b flavored stuff isworking just fine....but really there is nothing to suggest there is anything deeper developing.

I agree with PeterT23's comments that this version has a lot more mid-range definition. The others do indeed have more low-end thud, but lack the clarity and space of this recording. In other words, I agree that this recording is more balanced. If you need/want the thump, you can EQ your way deep into the Phil Zone.

The interplay and contrast between Haynes and Sco is amazing. The jams here really soar into the spaces that I really enjoyed visiting when listening to the Dead play these tunes. I love it when these guys takes risks and stretch it out.

Thank God Phil is still with us after all he has been through health-wise. Keep it coming, man!

The weekend endend w/ Phil and Phriends and what an ending it was........From the first notes to the last hand clasp for NFA, an awesome Phil Show.

Camping the whole weekend, created a great enviornment for a show...Neighbors camping on the
access road within the camping area were extremely

As I listen here to the recording, It brings back Intense memories.... Althea ....Scarlet EYES Fire
Whooooa.....The first set was so long we all were
wondering if Phil was going to Play 1 long set or
if there was going to be a break....After Eyes Phil tells us not to go anywhere they'll be back in "5 minutes. and I mean it, 5 Minutes"....

Well after taking care of some business the boys were right back at it....The sound was some of the
best in years....It seemed that the Energy level of all was mighty....Phil mentions this during the donor rap and Thanked us for Making Music w/ them....What a great EXPERIENCE All around....
Oh yea the bears running through our campsites added that extra that Festivals Give you...
For those who missed, the music is here , However the Experience was At The MOUNTAIN.....

Thanks to Warren for getting it all Together...

Subject: Good summer comeback for Phil
Show is five stars, sound is three, so I averaged a four.

Anyways, great comeback summer show for Phil. Displaying an almost completly different lineup from his more recent shows (minus John Molo) the Waren Haynes/ John Scofield combonation really worked and the two seemed to dig on Phil's jams without nessisarily trying to copy the dead version bang for bang. Guest keyboardist Steve Molitz is from my hometown of Boulder and normally plays w/ Partical and he seemed stoked for another opportunity to play w/ Phil (as he should be)

Musically we get some Phil stapples, Unbroken Chain, Eyes (which is particularly rocking since in the middle of a Scarlet>Fire) and a Dark Star. Some unexpected ones include a banging version of the dead rarity Mason's Children where both Warren and John seem to weave the love well. Good Opener w/ Shakedown

Like the closing Lovelight and NFA but could have gone with a NFA>GDTRFB>NFA for the ULTIMATE closer, but maybe i'm biased since thats one of my favorites. No matter, still a great show. Hope Phil continues to play and spread the love.

Subject: Best version so far
Hey, fwiw, I've now checked out four different recordings of this show, and so far, this is MY personal favorite. I like balanced recordings. The BK4022 version here on the LMA is a little thinner than this. The two other versions I've heard (AKG461 and MK4FOB) are both fuller in the low end, clearer low bass notes, but in the process they both sacrifice some mid-range clarity. I think this recording presents the most balanced listening experience, especially for vocals and piano, and the guitars sound fuller - but YMMV, and if you want thumping low end, try one of the other sources, they're torrenting now on and will probably show up here soon enough...

Subject: Wasn't There, Sounds GREAT!!
I was planning on going to Mountain Jam just for Sunday night and bailed out at the last minute. Man do I feel stupid! The line-up was a good combination, with two leads Scofield and Haynes played really well off each other's solos. John Molo is a man who needs no cues, nuff said. Surprisingly Steve Molitz from Particle did a real good job interpreting the Grateful Dead's most classic and more recent libraries. All in all, a great show not to pass over.

First Set Highlights: Scarlet>Eyes>Fire was so fluid.
Second Set: No one I know expected an Unbroken Chain from Warren, being a more bluesy guitarist, but again, w/ Scofield it gave it a great feel.

Lastly, Phils vocals were on spot, and that's what really counts.
